Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She researches and shares remedies for using certain products for illnesses.

Making Money While You Sleep

It is so good to wake up in the morning and check your Google AdSense account and exclaim, "Wow! I made that much money while I slept."

If you write something every day, people can read it even while you are sleeping. Then you will get paid for it.

Make Money By Writing Online

You can accumulate money while you sleep if you write often and promote what you write on social media. The more you write and people read what you write, you will get paid more.

Therefore, if you write little, you will make a little amount of money. If you write nothing, you will receive nothing. So, if you want to make a lot of money, you should write a lot of articles.

Keep in mind that when you write you have to promote your work so people will know that it is available. Therefore, share your articles on all your social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linkin, and Instagram. Also, join groups with people who have an interest in the articles you have written.

If you want to see how easy it is to make money while you sleep, post some articles the day before. Then, check your account the next day to see how much money you have made.

While you are sleeping, other people around the world are wide awake, and they might read your article.

Residual Income

Some writing sites keep your articles forever. Therefore, you will receive residual income for years to come.

This article was published on HubPages on February 22, 2011, and it is still accumulating income for me.

Evergreen Content

One way to keep making money while you sleep is to write evergreen content.

Evergreen content is information that doesn't go out of style. It is not current news that is interesting only for a few days. For instance, writing about what a celebrity did at an awards show might interest people only for a few days after the event is over. A month later, the news is no longer interesting because other events will be more current.

If you write an article about something that has an ongoing interest, it will attract readers for many years to come.

If you write articles that people are interested in during the year, you will get paid for that same article every time someone reads it. Therefore, consider writing and promoting evergreen articles.

Evergreen content can generate organic traffic long after it you wrote it. Try it and see.
